About Sydney

As a recent graduate from UC Santa Barbara, I am so excited to pass on my knowledge of reading, writing and editing. With four years of English literature under my belt, as well as extensive editing experience for my minor, I believe that I would be a great fit for anyone with a drive to improve or polish their reading and writing skills. This year I interned as an editor for an academic journal, editing countless student essays for grammar, style, and clarity; so, although I'm new to WyzAnt, I think that my extensive background and my dedication to hard work and success will make me a valuable resource!

I hope to meet the needs of each student by tailoring my sessions to the task at hand and the level of guidance needed. I want to be involved as much or as little as necessary; each student works differently and at their own pace. Some students need more hands-on help, including homework and constant correspondence, and others excel with mere guidance and proofreading. It's my job to speak with every student on an individual basis and see what he or she is looking to achieve in our tutoring sessions!

I majored in English at UC Santa Barbara, and minored in professional editing. In addition to my in-class experience with the subjects, I have interned as a tech writer and an on-campus peer editor for academic essays. I have taken technical courses in grammar and writing stylistics, and even studied English abroad at University of Edinburgh in Scotland. My comprehensive experience with writing, reading, and everything in between has taught me that practice and perseverance are the best way to understand that book you're trying to tackle or find your own writing style.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or if you would just like to discuss what you're looking for in a tutor--I'm all ears!
